(hi from a newbie!)

You Take and I Pay

You took my mind
But not my sanity
You took my body
But not my strength
You took my soul
But not my spirit
You took my confidence
But not my pride
You took my optimism
But not my faith
You did the crime
But I pay the price



You Tell Me What To Put
Did I dress the part
For the role he forced me to play.
Did my mouth speak a myth
That I wanted it because Iím gay.

Was it my location
That led to the crime.
What shall I put here
For a convenient rhyme?

Now you tell me what I did wrong
And what I should do.
So I guess I will leave that line up to you.


Blame me
So easy to cast your stones and blame me
Go ahead whatever grants you sanity.

Blame my clothes and my symmetrical face
Blame it on my sexuality, my gender and my race.

Tell me the anti-depressant played a factor
Or that I am a very good actor.

Oscar for me, any day now
Who isnít on Prozac any how?

Say it happened because I like to dance
Say itís because of the style of my pants.

Donít for once question your reason
God forbid you look inward for such treason

My guilt would bring joy
Knowing you could easily avoid

That which happened to me
Can never happen to thee

Maybe you are just looking for a way
To make you and your family feel safe today

Wow that is powerful stuff for so few words. I can see so much of my questioning in your lines. Amazing how much in common we have being so diverse. Sex abuse,,the great leveler. Thanks for your words I was touched by them tonight.

eyes,

More cool poems - thanks for sharing them. I'm sure you have seen we have a forum here where you can talk to other gay brothers on the site. There's also a gay circle called "'Mos on a Mission" that meets every Monday evening - you can get details and more information from Jarrad, who runs the group.

Much love,
Larry
